The 6012 is the original bulb. The 6014 is a replacement bulb for the 6012. The 6024 is a halogen bulb. Here is the results of a test on 6012, 6014 and 6024 headlights. At 14 volts a 6012 bulb draws 2 amps on low beam, a 6014 draws 3 amps and a 6024 draws 1.75 amps. On high beam a 6012 draws 3 amps, a 6014 draws 3.5 amps and a 6024 draws 4 amps. The increase in current draw between the 6012 and the 6024 headlights shouldn't cause problems with a headlight circuit that is in good condition.
